My name is Elia Gressin Zapata. I’m first of all the mother of three awesome kids which inspire me every day for creating unique, comfortable, and durable clothes.
I was born in Peru. My birth country has always been a source of inspiration. Using the exceptional Pima cotton that I luckily wore during all my childhood has always been in the heart of my concept.
My adoptive country, France, inspired me to create and develop modernity, sweetness, and poesy.
Traveling around the world gave me faith in humanity putting the persons at the center of creativity while respecting nature. I’m working with an exclusive group of tailors and suppliers in which I have full confidence.
My career in International Business, and since the beginning of 2020 as a Doula, and Infant massage instructor, enables me to mix all my experiences and use them to keep the best of the countries I love so much United States, France, and Peru.
We are a brand that creates high-quality clothes while maintaining comfort, softness, and beauty throughout every collection. We started in Toulouse (South of France) in 2008 and based in Miami, Florida since 2011.
The key to the luxurious feel of the Melopima collection is the long-staple Pima Cotton which is known among connoisseurs for its fine fiber quality and silky surface.
Melopima guarantees that at all times the manufacturing process is done under fair trade conditions, each piece on the collection is conceived with this in mind.
